Course summary

Whatever the purpose and whoever the user, web design marries the technical with the creative. The pioneers and leaders in this industry over the past 20 years have been both talented developers and left-field thinkers – a combination of creativity and code that has helped shape the modern digital experience. Our BSc course offers a range of units shaped around both aspects. Considering the technical and the aesthetic side by side, you will gain an insight into the past, present and potential futures of web and user experience design. The course also offers a space for investigating user experience as a discipline – a method of understanding what users need and creating exciting experiences that meet both user and business needs. It’s a course that will help you develop the key practical and personal skills that today’s digital agencies need, or that can pave the way for further study and research – in areas including Computer Science, User Experience and Project Management, among others. As a Web & User Experience Design student, you will be part of a vibrant, multi-disciplinary creative community at our School of Digital Arts (SODA). With an innovative curriculum that ignores the narrow limits of any one discipline, you’ll have ample opportunity for collaborating with fellow SODA students – whether they’re studying games, photography, animation or sound design (to name a few). It’s an approach designed to mirror the real working practices within the creative industries, but it also lets you find the cross-over areas and creative directions that interest you most. And, just as you’ll learn industry practices, you’ll also use industry tools – developing your skills in an environment that has been designed, built and equipped with the latest technologies.More than a purpose-built creative school, we also boast a globally renowned creative setting. Manchester is home to the second-largest media and creative sector in the UK, with a huge range of production companies, digital agencies and media businesses, from national broadcasters to innovative start-ups. As such, it’s not only an ideal city for your education in web and UX, but a perfect place to take your first steps as a professional. Here, you can learn from some of those at the forefront of the discipline, build your network and secure your career in the media, games or digital tech industries.You will also have the opportunity to study abroad if you wish, and also the option to do your third year as a placement in Britain or abroad.This course has a Foundation Year available.Features and benefits:- The design, coding and research skills you will learn at university will enable you to make the most of new devices as they become part of our digital world- Be at the heart of SODA’s multi-disciplinary network, practising design thinking surrounded by practitioners and researchers from a range of related disciplines- As the digital job market is constantly changing, this course has been designed in consultation with industry to make you ready for a wide range of career choices
